Experts poke holes in Clinton Foundation's promised donor ban

They say it would be relatively easy for foreign governments or individuals to funnel cash into the foundation during a Hillary Clinton presidency without the American public ever learning of the foreign influence — despite the former president’s promises outlined in an August 22 open letter published on the Clinton Foundation’s website.

Karen Hobert Flynn, the president of the non-partisan watchdog Common Cause, said there were “lots of different ways” that untraceable foreign money could reach the Clinton Foundation under the current broad terms of Bill Clinton’s promise.
She said it can be difficult to determine who is donating to a limited liability corporation or another partnership, and that the terms of the open letter would allow such an entity to donate to the Clinton Foundation.

“You could have some kind of LLC or other partnership where it isn’t even clear who the donors are,” Flynn said.
